What does receiving this money mean to you?
We are growing old with my husband and we are struggling with old age healnes. I cannot perform most of household chores because of an injury on my left foot that I got five years ago. We are happy that we are getting Give Directly money so that it will help us in medication. We spend about KES 10,000 in every three months for medication. This is too high given that we cannot work in farm work anymore.
What is the happiest part of your day?
Our cow culved in February this year and it was a relieve to us since we depend on milk so much. It was a joyful moment to us. We sell part of the milk to help us finance our family while we consume the remaining.
What is the biggest hardship you've faced in your life?
We cannot go for casual jobs anymore to support ourselves, therefore we depend more on our children yet they are also struggling with unemployment. Old age healnes is a challenge to us since it does not allow us to work anymore.
